Pleco with betta macrostoma

I have some pleco with my betta macrostoma even though the female macrostoma looks like she can gobble the pleco who she doesn't even touch them. Here a video of my tank. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbJP8XhctUY

So if you want to find a good mate for your betta pleco seems to be well pair with betta they don't bother each other.

Hi and welcome to the forum 920fish. Is that leopard pleco full-grown? It's so tiny! Really cute. I've never seen one before. It looks similar to a zebra pleco.

Thank you. Nope, they are only 1inch leopard pleco lol. The female mac is big enoug to swallow them whole but she doesn't touch them. True it does look like the zebra that are usually $100 each :).

You have Betta macrostoma, I'm so jealous! I was so close to getting some, but someone snatched them up before me. They are expensive here, around $300-$350 for a pair.

The pattern on your pleco is interesting. I don't mind the smaller species. Commons look ugly once they hit a foot long haha.
